Nov 11, 2010-Jan 3, 2011 Dreamination

Thisis one of Hiroshima's biggest draws of the winter season and is becoming a one of the city's biggest yearly attractions.

Peace Boulevard and parts of the city center will be illuminated with thousands of colored light bulbs to what some think are somewhat tasteless effect and to others are exciting and fun.

This year there are 23 different theme areas and they boast that Dreamination beats the rest of Japan's illuminations in three respects: 2km of illuminations along Peace Boulevard, 120,000 bulbs and a 30m tall decorated tree.

It would be nice to see solar panels along the boulevard charging up power during the day to run the illuminations at night to make it a less wasteful event.

Live music shows on every Saturdays.
